C.P. McDill kicks off 2008 with a new release from Akashic Crow's Nest. Drones, sparkles, shimmers, vague rhythms & melodies carry the listeners on a weird introspective trip. This is good headphone music.
The recordings of Akashic Crow’s Nest are created by first making a very long thin picture file that functions much like a piano roll, which is then fed into a software synthesizer which reads the picture from left to right, pixel by pixel, and translates the values into tones, adding variables such as loudness and panning based on information in the picture. The output is then treated to various digital effects such as delays and compression to give the final pieces a warmer, ambient quality.
